Visiting Lalibela, the 8th Wonder of the World, will be one of the many highlights of your Ethiopia travels. The churches carved out of the rock and the religious underground passage ways are very impressive, especially when combined with the scent of incense and the singing of the churchgoers. Ethiopia has even more to offer: an interesting excursion to the city of Gondar. This city has been home to the Ethiopian kings for centuries. In the fabulous palaces and churches you’ll find colourful wall paintings depicting Ethiopia’s glorious past.
When you reach the south of the country during your tour of Ethiopia, you’ll get to know different primitive tribes which all have their own traditional and colourful rituals. You’ll come across wooden totems, typical markets, homemade clothing and strange body decorations! Mursi women, for example, wear plates in their lower lips and men don’t wear anything or maybe just a cloth around their shoulders.
The Mago National Park is a genuine recommendation for nature lovers travelling in Ethiopia. This national park consists of a desert, savannahs, hills and rivers. The diversity of the scenery makes this park very special and interesting. It is also home to a lot of wild animals among which you’ll find birds, crocodiles, hippos, apes and gazelles.
An Ethiopia tour is unbelievably beautiful and unforgettable and the hospitable and wonderful inhabitants of this country will make a lasting impression on you.
